How to get mountd to pass through checkpoint firewall

Hi All,

would someone be able to tell me how do I get NFS ports (particularly mountd) to pass through a Checkpoint R70 firewall? They are being blocked by Implied rules.

Ideally I'd like to be able to do this without changing the order in which the implied rules are applied to my rule base but if thats the only way then I'd like to find out what the repercussions could be on the rest of my rules.

Many thanks!

You should configure a VPN (remote) connection and access the NFS over the VPN.

There are different options depending on which NFS mode you use nfs3, or 4.

Hi there, sorry I should have mentioned that this is between two internal networks that are seperated by this firewall

You would then need to setup a set of rules on the firewall to allow the  UDP/TCP traffic between the interface segments outlined in the link from the earlier post.

sunrpc            111/tcp         rpcbind      #SUN Remote Procedure Call
sunrpc            111/udp         rpcbind      #SUN Remote Procedure Call
nfsd-status      1110/tcp   #Cluster status info
nfsd-keepalive      1110/udp   #Client status info
nfsd            2049/tcp   nfs            # NFS server daemon
nfsd            2049/udp   nfs            # NFS server daemon
lockd            4045/udp   # NFS lock daemon/manager
lockd            4045/tcp
